Old Joe Clark with guest star Jimmie Skinner

 Here`s a sort of unique record. This LP is in a live show type format. Old Joe Clark plays both old-time and bluegrass banjo on this and does comedy. The comedy is some pretty tired material though. I got this because I like Jimmie Skinner, but the cuts with him I think are just dubbed in, so for me, this record is a bit of a let down, but I wanted to post it anyhow, mostly for the banjo pickin. Happy downloading!


  1. I've got a cassette tape of Old Joe Clark with his son Terry. He was a star of the Renfro Valley Barn Dance, the last of the old time barn dances still operating.

  2. Thanks so much for this one, my friend. As those of us who play banjo understand: "Even bad banjo is good. And bad comedy is, too." All good wishes for 2013.


  3. There`s no such thing as bad banjo at my house! lol
